Description

Silicon City is a tribute to the good ol’ city builders from the 90’s. It revisits classic game mechanics such as grid-based playground with procedural development, different types of construction (residential area, public service building, shops and offices, parks and cultural areas) the organization of road traffic and managing the evolution of citizens.

History

It was in 2016 during a trip around the world that Silicon City was born. Aurélien Jacquot: "The idea of creating my own city builder came to me when I was facing the Hong Kong bay, dazzled by this megalopolis of technology and steel". He has since worked alone and relentlessly on this project until September 2020, when the Polycorne studio was born.
